Tonight’s UFC 273 event was headlined by a featherweight title fight featuring Alex Volkanovski taking on The Korean Zombie.

Volkanovski (24-1 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since defeating Brian Ortega back at September’s UFC 266 event. ‘The Great’ entered UFC 273 sporting a twenty-fight winning streak, which included two consecutive defenses of his featherweight title.

Meanwhile, The Korean Zombie (17-7 MMA) had last competed back in June of 2021, where he defeated Dan Ige by unanimous decision. That victory was of course preceded by a loss to Brian Ortega in 2020.

Tonight’s UFC 273 main event was dominated by the reigning featherweight champion of the world. Alex Volkanovski put on an absolute clinic while The Korean Zombie once again showed of his tremendous heart and incredible toughness. In the end, it was the Aussie emerging victorious by way of fourth round TKO after referee Herb Dean decided to mercifully step in and call a stop to the contest.
